He made beautiful things with that saw. The fence is good but not great as others have noted. My fence broke after less than 6 months. The major problem I had was assembling the saw on the stand. This is a well-designed and functional machine.

"I like things tight."
The Powermatic Table saws are top of the line. The fence is good but not great as others have noted. This is my second Powermatic table saw and I'm a happy customer. It's well balanced when you pick it up. It pretty much laughed at anything I threw at it.
